Corporate America Vows Support for Workers in Wake of SCOTUS Abortion Decision
This week companies in the U.S. expressed support for employees in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Courts decision to nulliufy Roe v. Wade, leaving regulations and laws on abortion to the states. Many companies offered to reimburse employees that need to travel to other states to get abortions, while still others promised to pay for relocations to states that support pro choice policies.
Dexerto, Accenture, Adobe, Airbnb, Bank of America, DraftKings, Box, Buzzfeed, Civtech, Conde Nast, Dick's Sporting Goods, Disney, DoorDash, Expedia, Google, H&M, Johnson & Johnson, Levi Straus, Lyft, Match, Meta, Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, Vox Media, Better Collective, Warner Bros., and many other companies promised to pay for employees seeking abortions in other states.
Companies that did not take a public stand are being criticized on social media and elsewhere for their lack of response as America is forced to lean into the harsh reality that a majority of judges in the highest court in the land have nullified a nearly 50-year-old precedent.
Let’s move on from this problematic and troublesome news and get into this week’s biggest moves in esports and gaming!
